    Reconstitution

    Petawawa base has had helos buzzing all over it for half a century…if you’re military-ish-enough to get a DWAN email, you’re military-ish-enough not to flake with an overflight, or a LAV grinding by, or a formation of troops rucking along the road, or a black bear loping around the East side of...

    Luke Skywalker, suspicious man from a different point of view.

    Let alone crushing on his sister…

    Global Warming/Climate Change Super Thread

    I’m not sure TBH. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Govt made sure it wasn’t counted. Morally, one can’t help look at the mountains of coal at Roberts Point waiting to sail to China without thinking that is eventually going to make its way into the environment at CO2. Now…fairs fair, so if...

    Global Warming/Climate Change Super Thread

    Interestingly Canada would drop to 3rd per capita behind US and RUS if we stopped shipping all the BC coal ripped out of the Rockiness and sold to China and Asia for their steel production. Math: 27 megatonnes of coal exported by Canada in 2021, which at 2.68 tonnes CO2 per tonne of coal...

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    At least on beef the tasty stuff is pretty far from the anus, not wrapped around it… 😆

    Canadian Surface Combatant RFQ

    I hear them described as a “rolling compost toilet.” I’m with @MJP, I’ll take the 🥩!

    You mean like the current executive arm of Government? 😉

    CH-146 Griffon

    Interestingly @KevinB, the current NATO ATP-49 no longer makes a differentiation between medium and heavy like it did in the past. Even the term MTH isn’t used a lot. The funny bit is that in civy world, a Bell Huey (212, 412, etc) is a ‘medium’ category helicopter. I see what you did there...

    CH-146 Griffon

    Both yesterday’s aircraft. The Griffon will be around for long enough that any Huey-based platform will be woefully out of date. As I said elsewhere, Boeing was a catalyst. Bombardier was looking to offload the C-Series to avoid any money-losing entanglement with its high-profit biz jet...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Occam’s Razor…it most likely doesn’t/didn’t.

    CH-146 Griffon

    Not unjustified skepticism, SO. I suppose we’ll see. If the Bell V280 Valor wins FVL-FLRAA, Mirabel will no doubt be set up to do some final assembly and contribute to the V280 global supply chain.

    CH-146 Griffon

    If it was up to Canada, possibly/likely. That was then… Canada has proven to other Western nations that it cannot be trusted to act responsibly or contribute its share, rather it had made an art of riding on others’ coattails. ‘Canada’ will most likely get whatever the US Army’s FVL program...

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    😉 Probably 100 (99% civ DND empl, 1% someone else)

    CH-146 Griffon

    Want to take a guess what international aerospace conglomerate influenced the Australian government to get a directed contract award to provide in-service support for the RAAF’s Lockheed C-130Js? Hint: NOT Lockheed. Hint #2: Same maker as the MRH-90 Taipan and Tigre AH. Yup…..

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending

    Which is ironic, given how Canada has de-powered itself to the point of now being subtly directed by the US how to invest in a number of wider security-related capabilities. Some Canadians complaining that CAF family members were getting standby flights on DND's contracted service air flights...
